23min of Ska : Both Feet on the Floor

23skatruckerbothfeetWhen I started this episode, and finished it a few weeks ago (sorry I’ve been working ahead a bit, I have been busy with my essential job (second aside: I don’t come into contact with many people, so don’t worry for me)) I didn’t expect the world to go to hell… I almost scraped this for a more pointed episode addressing America’s dire situation… but in the end this episode that I had assembled kept bringing me joy as I listened to it, and I want to bring you all joy as well in these, now very, troubling times. Be well my friends, take care of yourselves and care and help out others in need.

23min of Ska Convoy : the New, the Old & the Local

23skaTRUCKERconvoyMATTSka music has been a big part of my life for over the past 20 years. I even met my wife because of ska music. Being a teenager in Orange County, California in the mid 90’s you couldn’t escape ska music. However, when others stopped listening, ska music stayed in heavy rotation with me.

For this playlist, I followed a very simple plan to make it. I picked something old, something new and something local. Five Iron Frenzy, The O.C. Supertones and Less Than Jake are the bands I’ve been listening to the longest. Millington and The Skluttz are the newest bands on the list. Half Past Two, Hooray For Our Side and Codename:Rocky are some of my favorite hometown bands. I hope you enjoy my picks.

00:00 – O.C. Supertones – Supertones Strike Back (the Supertones Strike Back ’97)
02:37 – Hooray for Our Side – Don’t Panic (Overture ’15)
05:05 – Codename: Rocky – Ctl Alt Del (Reboot ’16)
07:22 – Less Than Jake – Motown Never Sounded so Good (Anthem ’03)
09:55 – the Skluttz – Ska Police (Confidence is Key ’20)
13:15 – Millington – Big Man on Campus (Millington ’18)
16:45 – Half Past Two – See You Again (See You Again ’20)
19:19 – Five Iron Frenzy – Cool Enough for You (Upbeats & Beatdowns ’97)

RJ sez: On the Upbeat is a hell of a fun podcast, go back and listen to the older episodes while the show is on break! And for full disclosure, Matt had picked different songs for Hooray for Our Side and Half Past Two, but after Half Past Two put out this killer new single we both knew it had to be included. This, of course, threw off the timing of the episode, so I offered up a change to the Hooray for Our Side song to even things out. Luckily Matt agreed and we have another rad episode!
